Homemade Fruit & Veggie Washes!

I always try to make sure I carefully wash all produce that we eat. Especially store-bought produce, even if it is organic.  If you are like me, you don't trust most store bought washes.  Many have been found to contain chlorine and are not that effective.



These Homemade fruit and vegetable washes are great at removing dirt, bugs, dissolving pesticides and residue from your produce, as well as helping to extend the life of your foods.  They are also Natural, Chemical Free and Safe.



Fruit and Veggie Wash 1
  • Fill a large (clean) sink or bowl with water
  • Add 1 Cup of Distilled White Vinegar 
Let your produce soak up to 30 minutes. Scrub with a veggie brush if necessary, then rinse produce thoroughly and allow to dry before storing in refrigerator.





Fruit and Veggie Wash 2
  • Fill a large (clean) sink or bowl with water
  • Add 1/4 Cup Hydrogen Peroxide
Let your produce soak up to 15 minutes. Scrub with a veggie brush if necessary, then rinse produce thoroughly and allow to dry before storing in refrigerator.




When washing leafy greens make sure to rinse off all the pesky hidden dirt and insects that can be found in crevices.  A salad spinner works great for helping to dry your greens.



Enjoy!
